Even though, we decided we would spoil them just a little bit more and order this thing called Barkbox. You know that new craze where you sign up to receive a box of something (makeup, organic snacks, kids stuff) once a month, and its mostly a surprise? Well they have that concept for dogs now...
I spotted a Groupon for BarkBox at a really great discount (because I'm nothing if not cheap!), and signed the boys up. Basically the concept is you tell them the size of your dog, and they send you a box of random goodies once a month for your dog to enjoy - about 4-5 treats or toys. The treat part is iffy with our "special" guy Louie, who has food allergies and is on a limited ingredient diet (only the best fish and sweet potato food for him - cha ching!), but Rudy will inhale anything :) And Louie would rather have the toys anyway!
The Groupon was for a 3-month subscription, so here are the photos and items from each month:
- Apple Cobbler Snicky Snacks (these actually smelled good to me!)
- Grain Free Jerky Chews
- Clean Carrot Crisp (Chew bone)
- Bionic stick toy (Louie loves chasing this thing!)
- Two stuffed squeaker toys (the boys have to be supervised with these - anything stuffed is almost immediately destroyed!)
- Grain Free Chicken Cordon Bleu Treats
- I think the rawhide looking thing was a flavored venison hide - they loved it!
- Green Bark Gummies (for joint health - grain free)
- Beef Liver and Banana treats (Lou can't have these, poor guy!)
- Benebone (bacon flavored - definitely a hit!)
- Silly bums stuffed squeaky toy in the shape of a monkey's butt! This is my personal favorite - talk about creativity :)
Both boys get so excited to see this box sitting on the counter - Louie can't help himself and jumps up to try to get into whatever is in there! It's entertaining getting a surprise for them each month, and is fun for us to see what shows up too, so they may get to keep it coming even now that the Groupon pricing is gone :)
